Hull FC fullback Jamie Shaul helped his team to a 38-10 victory over Catalan Dragons ..... but missed the birth of his first child to play.

Little Teddy was born to mum Chloe whilst Jamie was in Perpignan for Hull's promising start to the First Utility Super League season.

The result sees Hull maintaining their 100% win record after their win over Salford Red Devils last Friday. It means the Black and Whites have started the season with back-to-back wins for the first time in six years, with the result taking them top of the table once again.

And hopefully it was worth it for Jamie - who did score one of Hull's seven tries!
